Headlee, Prop A, and revenue sharing cuts take center stage in annual local budget discussions, and many planning departments are still operating at recessionary levels as a result of these broader pressures. Planners can bring important skills to local budget discussions, though—not just be on the table as a target of further cuts. Understanding how municipal finance works, making the case that planning is an essential service, and connecting land use planning and economic development tools to local budgets can help planners ensure that municipal solvency comes as a result of good planning, not at its expense.
